spectacular work on the PC, inspiring me to have the garage (when it gets built) wired for an oven and spraybooth , as well as the beer fridge and all the other essential needs
short fast loud, three things punk rock and vmaxs have in common

Thanks guys... I'm pretty happy with how its heading. I put the yokes and forks together last night and I'm not digging the short Harley risers with the single top clamp. I ordered a set of 1" risers. That'll look better I think.

Spotty... I use a PC gun from Eastwood and toaster oven for small parts, bigger parts go in the upstairs oven. I made a little spray booth in the basement with a squirrel cage fan to keep the PC overspray under control. You'll make back your investment with your first batch of parts. And you seriously can't screw up if you are careful.

How are you prepping the pieces for powder ?  I have used a cheap HF gun and got results way better than I ever expected.

Can you post some pix of your setup?

I bead blast them in an HF bench top blast cabinet. (which I don't recommend if you can support a free standing cabinet... the chute on the small one really isn't steep enough to keep the media down otherwise its great... anyone that mods bikes regular should be doing a ton of their own powder work... it's brainless and requires low effort for good results. I have to take frames, wheels, swing arms, handlebars (most) out to be done. I don't get good results with multi layered PC at home either. So if I want something powdered then candied or cleared... that stuff gets taken to a real powder coat shop. Their equipment is far more capable. But this single color stuff... rock on at home.

Got the new RSD LED cluster installed in the Speedo housing and wired into the stock harness... Easy peasy. Next up today I am going to hack up the headlight bucket and weld on a grill to the ring that I scored on ebay, gotta think about the best way to do that.

I built an oven from an old small freezer just right for wheels, but I can't get my controller figured out  >:(
